On July 6th nearly 150,000 International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) students around the world received their exam results.
They join a community of more than 1,493,820 IB graduates in 136 countries across the world. The number of students receiving their diplomas in the UK this year is 4,969, marking an increase on last year’s figures (4,925).
The Anglo European School celebrated their impressive results with a cohort average of 35 points, which compares favourably to the global diploma score of 30 (out of a maximum of 45.) The average pass rate for the UK was 34.6 points. Four students from Anglo attained over 40 in their diploma with the highest result at 43. Though statistics haven’t been finalised for this year, if we look at previous averages, a score of 43 would put this student into the top 2% of IB results globally – an incredible achievement.
The IBCP is the newest addition to the IB’s continuum and Anglo European was the first school in the country to launch the programme. It is designed for students wishing to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable skills sought after by employers. IBCP students have received their results for the DP subjects studied within the CP and now await their A Level results in August.
“I’d like to praise and congratulate the students; these results are as good as they are because our students have shown great dedication, commitment and hard work in their learning. We are very proud of what they have achieved.”
Marie-Louise Brown – IB Curriculum Manager
“Independent research confirms that the IB improves students’ academic achievement, as well as their probability of high school graduation and college enrolment, and it is clear that our students are better prepared to succeed in post-secondary settings.
“And, perhaps more importantly, they’re better prepared to contribute in helping to make the world a better place.”
Dr Siva Kumari, IB Director General.
